Green Manufacturing And Recycled Shutters In Southern California We provide window treatments that are recyclable or contain some recycled material in them because we believe in providing you with sustainable shutter products. Polywood® shutters are not only a fully recyclable shutter, but they are also made of up to 20% recycled Polywood material. We’re the only shutter company in Southern California or even the US that does that. Sunburst supports green design, products, and buildings. We aim for reusing any and all materials whenever it’s feasible. We recycle water that cools down items as they come out of ovens. We reuse packaging supplies. We reuse shutter scraps – or regrind them and turn them into new shutters. We end up recycling hundreds of tons of materials each year. When we package our window treatments to be transported to your residence for installation, we put reusable corner pieces on the louvers’ edges and use minimal cardboard to pack up the shutters. Non-Toxic Paint Finish For Shutters The patented paint finishes we apply to your plantation shutters are environmentally safe – and are even lower than the accepted volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions allowed. During our manufacturing process, our paints don’t give off fumes. We mean it when we declare our paints are safe. Polywood Shutters do not emit harmful gasses – so you and your household can relax and savor your window treatments. The Only Shutter Recycling Program in Southern California If you ever desire to change your window treatment styles, we offer a shutter recycling program in Southern California to keep Polywood shutters out of landfills. You simply have to remove the shutters yourself, and contact our store manager, Kimball, at 888-611-2474 to schedule a pick-up. We will pick up your shutters and reuse some part of them in future Polywood shutters. This is true for Polywood shutters only—we don’t recycle other shutter brands. With this program, you can recycle Polywood shutters at no cost to you. And, together, we’re aiding in keeping the environment green in Southern California.
